Dinner with famous South Carolinians

North Charleston resident Madelaine Mordenti wants an actor, a comedian and an NBA basketball player — all from South Carolina — to join her for a dream dinner. 

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: Khris Middleton, Aziz Ansari and the late Chadwick Boseman.

DRINK: Tom Collins from the Cocktail Club. “The Cocktail Club [had] a Tom Collins as one of its drink specials that was based with orange blossom instead of lemon. It was divine to say the least.”

APPETIZER: Hush puppies from MOMO. “MOMO’s hush puppies are drenched in corn butter with a slight kick of jalapeño. I could eat my weight in these.”

ENTREE: Pecan-crusted flounder from The Establishment. “The Establishment’s menu changes all the time, so one of my biggest sorrows in life is the fact that I may never have that pecan-crusted flounder again. But I know I’ll enjoy anything chef Howells creates!”

DESSERT: Bread pudding from Doar Bros, a bar in downtown Charleston.
